100 Legos for 100 Days of School

Our school celebrates the 100th day of the school year tomorrow.
Of course, weeks ago, they sent out reminders that this day was coming.
They sent out suggestions for items to bring.  They sent out emails, notes in their weekly newsletters and even a blurb or two from the sweet principal in her weekly correspondence.  Basically, no excuses...
If you've followed for very long you know this is not the first time that I we've waited until the last (or almost last) minute.  Actually, I think I'm more creative when something has to be done NOW.  (That's my story and I'm sticking to it.)
So, we're going to dinner last night and trying to think of something (yes, we are actually planning TWO whole days before it HAS to be there!) different from last year for Jack's 100 day project.  (CLICK HERE to see last year's project.)
Pennies...been there, done that.  Pictures...momma likes, but will take some time...printing 100 small pictures and arranging them to spell Jack or 100...cute but time consuming.  The oldest pipes up, "how about Legos."  Ahhh, Legos.  Now that something we have a crazy amount of...this should be easy!  We have lots of the white 3 x 2 blocks left over from the Lego Mini Figure Board.  And by "lots" I mean 61.  No problem.  Surely in the 9 drawers and 6 other boxes I could come up with 39 more white 3 x 2 blocks.  Make that 8.  You read correctly, 8.  Out of thousands and thousands pieces of Lego...I found 8.  I'll do the math for you...we need 100.  We have 69.  We're short 31 stinkin' pieces of Lego.  Really?!?  Oh, and it's 7:30 in the evening.  Enter super-husband!  He was on board for the whole Lego idea and decided to make it a reality by cruising to the mall (his favorite place..)
By 10 o'clock he was not only back from the Lego store, but he also had put together the 100 day project.  I think he did an awesome job!!!  We're so lucky to have him for our husband and daddy!
Hope your 100 day projects have gone (will go) smoothly!

May share this 100 day project with some of the fun parties in our sidebar =>

I love this idea! My son just celebrated his 100th day of kindergarten too & we made a poster out of fruit loops. Not nearly as cute as this turned out. :) Thanks for visiting my blog!

I had some questions regarding the lego project.Can the blue base fit on a poster board and how?How many blue pieces did you use for the base?
